Tis the Season for Cheer

Happy Holidays from the "Little Brewery" in Shiner, TX. We hope you enjoy your Shiner Cheer, an Old World Dunkelweizen brewed with Texas peaches and roasted pecans. The malty flavors of this dark wheat ale are enhanced through the use of malted barley and wheat. And Krusening ensures a smoothnessthat makes the subtle peach and pecan flavors all the more satisfying. May your days be merry and bright and your Shiner be cold.

PROSIT!

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2014
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark chestnut color which is disappointingly devoid of haziness for the style. The head is a one finger off-white shade. It isnt particularly creamy, nor does it have great retention. It leaves behind a thin ring of lacing on the glass. S: Peach notes are at the forefront. Im having trouble picking up any nuanced malt qualities, though, and thats unfortunate. Maybe a touch of caramel and some wheat. At first, I thought I picked up a cheesy scent, but thats gone away almost entirely in the glass. The fruitiness IS pretty nice anyways. T: Okay, I lied - the malt here is like a punch in the face. It hits the palate immediately with caramel-laden sweetness, clashing with the (nice) peach notes instead of coexisting peacefully. At least the peachy finish is pleasant - too bad I dont pick up much pecan flavor. Theres too much in the way of clashing flavors for me to enjoy this. M: Light, but too sweet on the palate to really inspire drinkability. Carbonation does its damnedest to help it go down, though. O: Its a shame about its lack of balance, because I enjoy the fruity flavors of this. Wasnt a fan of this one, frankly. On the plus side, I can see this appealing to other drinkers.

This is by far the best winter/holiday beer Ive had so far. So many brewers try to take advantage of marketing a so-called winter brew but they all lack any original or honesty. Shiner appears to have taken the time and research to bring something worthy. My only downgrade is they describe the peach as subtle, which its not.

sawbuck (666) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Heavy aroma of candied peaches....like from a can. Dark brown color with a tan head that quickly fades. Sweet malty flavors up front quickly drowned out by an artificial peach flavor. Body is nice, but finish is drowned by that same peach flavor. Fruit is over the top otherwise covering up a nice dunkel.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is medium amber with a quick lasting head. Pshaw! The aroma is ridiculous and almost seems fake with this overpowering peach juice character that takes away any other barley malt sensations that may exist underneath. They describe it as "subtle?" Seems a bit off. The body is light to medium. And like the aroma there is the overwhelming peach juice flavor. Maybe it is supposed to be this way but for me this is a real downer. I dont think I can finish it.

I have seen this around but never tried it before. Purchased in a flight at a local emporium. It delivers a nice brown with a reddish tint and a slender light colored foam. No heavy scent but it is a bit fruity. With a taste I get some cranberry (of the season?) and a bit of maltiness. A session beer so it has no big mouth feel but does end with a medium bitterness.

Pours a dark brown, medium head that eventually dissipates. Nice roasted malt aroma and taste. A little heavy on the peaches; would be better if peaches were a bit more dialed back. A nice diversion from Shiner Bock, their flagship.

October 23rd, 2014 - Shiner Bock is a ubiquitous beer, especially if you happen to orbit near Texas, but the Shiner Cheer is rarer outside the Fall season, I think, which is a shame because it brings a little more intensity and engaged flavors to the glass. Dark brown yet clear, it looks like a filtered brown beer, but the flavor is much, much sweeter than a brown ale. Its very heavily burned with a crystallized strawberry sugar sweetness, like the meaty center of a strawberry pop tart. The body is thin and the carbonation is low, both of which allow the candied sugar sweets of strawberry and cherry to run rampant. Despite the threat of diabetes, its not a cloyingly bad beer, but just one that needs to be treated with some caution.

Felsenbrau (50) - Middletown, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Bottle. Pours a medium orange-brown with durable cream-colored head and some lacing. Aroma of nuts, caramel, spices. Taste is sweet with some caramel, hazelnut, subtle spices. Palate is clean, no after taste what-so-ever. Overall, this is one of my favorite seasonals this year, but I tend to like sweet heavier beers.

Draft at Kaseys Tavern in Chicago. The aroma has funky "off" aromas. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel, rotten peaches, cooked vegetables. Nauseating.

Caramel color. Thick brown head. Peach, grain, straw, and spice aromas. Starts a little bittersweet and finishes with a sweet and sour profile. Peach and malt flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
